Space Text Sound documents text material used in three of my recent installations: An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Hong Kong (After Perec) (2016), Drifting (2016) and Other Ghosts (2015). All three of these works investigate the nexus points between the production of space through sound and how text can be used to reflect on this process. I’m interested in how words can convey the sense of place sounds can and, beyond this, how these words impart a feeling for inner spaces, often more commonly referred to as reading between the lines. By entering this inner space of text we can also approach the
notion of hearing between the sounds, sensitizing ourselves to that void where spaces form, mutate, collide. Reading through these texts after the installations were long over, I found that they stood on their own apart from the greater works they were initially a component of and therefore valid standing on their own presented in book form.
